I recently spotted a gorgeous lighthouse curtain fabric from the new Abakhan fabrics range online and I knew it would be perfect for my kitchen. I’m planning to decorate my kitchen with a lovely fresh blue colour scheme and I wanted to use red and white as feature colours for the room, so this pattern incorporates all these colours and lends a coastal feel to the kitchen. I think this fabric would look great in a bathroom too, or even as upholstery fabric in a campervan or for beach hut curtains! Basically, I’m trying to make my kitchen look as holiday-cottage-like as possible haha!
I’ve got a length of the Abakhan Porto Lighthouse fabric in beige (which is double-width at 280cm) and some matching thermal lining fabric and, having taken inspiration from the images above, I’m planning to make a roman blind for the kitchen. Maybe I’ll even make a pot-holder and oven glove if I have enough fabric left over! I always thought that it would be pretty difficult to make a roman blind, and this is the first time that I’m attempting it, but I’ve done a lot of research and have read up on lots of tutorials, so I’m fairly confident that I can make a pretty blind for my little kitchen window. I’ll update you soon, and hopefully share step-by-step photos too, so watch this space!
